About the property

House, 3 Beds, 2 Baths, mountain lake views balconies open fire wifi

Our Home is suited to discerning guests, couples or families. It has been set up for our family and friends so is NOT the usual rental place. Even though it is a 3 bedroom home, the main living level has main bedroom so the downstairs area (with 2 bedrooms and study) can easily be separated off if not required so it is still very good for just 1 couple. All beds are luxuriously fitted with electric blankets and cosy duvets and the beds are comfy.

Floor to ceiling glass brings the view inside, so you only have to move from one chair to another to appreciate the beauty of our garden, the mountains and the lake. You don't even have to go outside on the balconies (which extend from every room) to appreciate Queenstown.

Relax in leather recliners in front of the TV with surround sound with an open fire burning, and still take in the sunset.

A reserve in front provides additional privacy and our trees and garden hide our home from the road, and minimise any noise. You can walk through the reserve to the town for a more scenic walk rather than down the hill.

The kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and perfect for gourmet cooking at home. We have a dishwasher, bread maker, blender, microwave, sandwich maker to name a few, and the crockery, glassware and cutlery is high standard. If you prefer, you can cook a barbecue in our entry courtyard and enjoy a casual meal in the solarium which is always warm and looks into our front garden.

The spa bath in the ensuite is a perfect way to unwind after a day out walking or skiing.

As we are set up for our own family we appreciate the needs of young children and have a cot, highchair, stroller and even car seats. Just ask if you would like any of these provided.

We have our Subaru available if required at minimal cost. It is well suited for around town and trips to Arrowtown, Glenorchy, Te Anau and Milford Sound so is great for sightseeing.

There is no other place like Queenstown. Uniquely spectacular, and combining all sorts of adventure and relaxation activity, beautiful scenery, and the wonder of the outdoors, with world class shopping, entertainment, restaurants and bars.

Four distinct seasons and four different appeals to the senses. Our Home has panoramic views over Lake Wakatipu and the mountains. It is a few minutes into the heart of Queenstown, and an ideal stepping off place for local sightseeing.

International visitors 'downunder' should do OZ and NZ in the one trip and marvel at the contrasts. Locals will know that Queenstown is the adventure capital of the Asia Pacific region, and is like the Swiss Alps just a few hours from home.

About Adelle

I am semi retired and move between Queenstown and Sydney, where my family live. I love scenery and gardens and find Queenstown an ideal place to enjoy with family and friends.

Adelle purchased this house in 2000

Why Adelle chose Queenstown

We fell in love with Queenstown after staying just one night in 1968. We love the location and after all this time, it is still beautiful. We have been able to share this with our family and friends and now open it to select guests.

What makes this house unique

Our Home is on the Queenstown Hill above the town where you can relax inside or outside on one of the numerous decks and enjoy the views and scenery.

We have modified our Home to make it comfortable and cosy and it is a pleasure to be in, regardless of the season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Liz and Adelle,

I wanted to thank you for an absolutely wonderful stay in your beautiful house. It was so comfortable and lovely, we had such a special family vacation in it. And those views! It was hard leaving today. :) Everything was perfect.

Thank you again,

Stunning views, very cosy, lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful ten days here in July/August for a family wedding. Well located, quite close to town (but uphill on the way home.) Taxi home wasn't expensive. We really appreciated the spacious living areas and magnificent views!! The house was always lovely and warm and the open fire added to the ambience. The showers are great and there's lashings of hot water. Thank you for allowing us to live in your lovely home. We would definitely stay here again.

Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here! The views from almost every room where incredibly beautiful. We almost didn't want to leave at all to go out on adventures. Very roomy and spacious for an entire family or group of friends. Close to town, clean, great staff and owners. I'd stay there again -- and again and again.

Love this home, this stay was our second time and hope to return again soon. Many things to do in the Queenstown area and nearby. Great communications with owners and representatives, all very helpful.

Fabulous House and Views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this perfect home, in a gorgeous setting overlooking Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown. The home was very comfortable, with everything we needed. It has such a beautiful view that you don't need to leave, although of course we did because there's so much to do around Queenstown! We took lots of pictures of the Lake and surroundings from the deck. You can walk into the town (although it IS steep coming back up), or rent the car from Adelle. It's so nice to have the convenience of renting the car, right from the house. Altogether one of our favorite homes (and we've rented through VRBO for 20+ years), and already telling our friends to go!

The property is beautiful and the views are amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property really is a home away from home. It is beautiful, spacious, comfortable and welcoming. The views are absolutely amazing and easy to enjoy from all the living areas and decks. The house has everything you need - fully equipped kitchen, wood for fires, movies and books and all the extras in bedrooms and bathrooms. Couldn't recommend it enough. We will certainly visit again as soon as we can!
